Clear Lam Packaging, Inc., Elk Grove Village, Ill., developed a new Peel and ReSeal Lidding Film for Ready Pac, Inc. retail lettuce trays. The new lidding technologyClear Lam carrots container helps Ready Pac reduce package weight by up to 32% compared to preformed rigid lids, improves shipping cube and allows for more product on the pallet to reduce transportation and warehousing costs. In addition, the Peel and ReSeal system eliminates shrink bands and thermoformed lids, making it easy to open and close.

The Peel and ReSeal system is incorporated into the flexible film roll. Two rolls of film can provide the same number of impressions as a full pallet of preformed rigid lids, reducing landfill waste. The new tamper-evident Peel and ReSeal Lidding Film is hermetically sealed and opens easily and reseals to the package with a light touch, offering consumers reliable access to the product. The lidding also allows for use of modified atmosphere to extend shelf life.
Applications for the new Peel and ReSeal Film include prepared meals, meats, cheeses and baked goods, among others.
